I don't think I've seen McCattis together at the bottom of the order before.

I thought the same thing.  Maybe it'll confuse Porcello.

I guess it's in part because Marwin's climbed the ladder.

And rattling Porcello because he clearly remembers just pitching to that guy is a brilliant strategy.

Fox dipshits talking about the Yankees, of course, even though they don’t play for about 5 hours.  In prime time, natch. 

Can’t say I’m too bothered that the last game in Boston is tough for them to attend / be drunk for.  Hope we can keep them quiet and subdued today.

Looks like there's a good chance we get a rain delay...which team does that favor?  Our logical long man to throw out there after a rain delay would be who?  Martes/Fiers?

I really hope Price isn’t available today.  Also, I thought they might start Sale, given this being a must-win for them.  I’m sure Porcello is on a short leash.

I would hope the Astros, as Price has pitched a couple of long relief stints in the last two games.  They may throw him again, but I’d like to think the Astros would get him this time - he walked a few tightropes yesterday.

Game 5 is must win for them too, so don't know that it makes sense to start Sale on short rest.

Neither Martes nor Fiers are on the roster. There is no logical long man for the Astros today. McHugh isn’t on the roster either, I’m sure McCullers isn’t available... probably just piece it together with Musgrove, Harris etc. Maybe Verlander, depending.

Peacock could probably go again today.

Thanks for all the feedback.  Damn the rain.  I'd rather just see a straight forward 9 inning game.  Something about off and on play that worries the shit out of me.  Then again, I'm strong as an oak against pressure in every area of my life save the Astros.  When times get dicey with the Stros, I fold like a cheap lawn chair.

I know it shouldn’t bother me, because it’s been going on forever, but it’s wholly pissing me off that the pregame show is all about rooting for the Red Sox.

Especially after the nose in assholes act the broadcast crew pulled yesterday.
